With indoor leisure set to reopen on Monday 17 May, BOXPARK is pressing play on its popular games and activities, which include Meetspace VR, Bad Axe and Pop Golf, a brand new pop music-themed crazy golf concept.

BOXPARK is excited to celebrate the return of ‘PLAY’ to its Wembley venue whilst bringing leisure to Croydon for the first time ever. Thrill seekers can dive into some competitive axe throwing at both venues, or head over to BOXPARK Wembley for an immersive experience of virtual reality gaming, as well as a dedicated space for activities such as shuffleboard, table tennis, pool and table football. 

Back for good. Back for the summer. BOXPARK is the perfect day out with delicious street food, refreshing summer drinks, and heaps of entertainment - all Covid-friendly of course!

Bad Axe Throwing

The world’s biggest urban axe throwing club Bad Axe is opening its second UK venue at BOXPARK Croydon on 17 May. 

Axe throwing is perfect for many occasions such as family entertainment, social gatherings, birthday parties, stag and hen dos, date nights or corporate events. Participants receive hands-on training from a team of experienced coaches and all skill levels are welcome. 

To meet safety guidelines, Bad Axe has lowered its capacity and minimum booking size allowing as little as four people to book and reserve a lane for two hours. In addition, hand sanitisers will be available on each lane, table service will be in operation for drinks and snacks, and axes and surfaces will be cleaned thoroughly between each group. Social distancing will be implemented but where the 2m distance is not achievable, face masks will be provided for customers.

Bad Axe is located on the upper level at BOXPARK Wembley and Croydon, open 7 days a week from 4pm to 10pm on weekdays and 11am to 10pm on weekends. Both walk-ins and online bookings are welcome with the walk-in availability updated regularly on the website here. Games start from £25 per person.


Pop Golf

Launching for the first time on 17 May at BOXPARK Wembley, Pop Golf is set to offer a completely unique social experience for crazy golfers and 21st century pop music fans, built on the belief that nothing brings people together like music and play. 

The ultimate playground for pop lovers, the venue features a course of nine pop-themed holes paired with a killer sound system. From Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ to retro 80’s boomboxes and suspended cassette tapes, each hole is completely unique and has been designed to offer the experience of stepping straight into a music video.

Far from the generic crazy golf venue, Pop Golf’s music-first ethos will be bolstered by cutting edge audio technology, forward-thinking playlist curation from industry experts showcasing the best new tracks, and exclusive content from up & coming acts, making Pop Golf the ultimate 21st century pop music fan zone.

Pop Golf will open with Covid-19 safety measures in place including digital menus, a robust cleaning regimen, mask policies, sanitising stations and more for a socially distanced, fun experience. Visit the website at to register your interest and receive 50% off tickets.


Meetspace VR

Award-winning, free-roam and cutting edge virtual reality experience, Meetspace VR came to BOXPARK Wembley last October with its unique games, including Free Roam, VR Escape Room and VR Arcade. Equipped with VR headsets, headphones, military-style backpacks and a gun, players move freely in an empty warehouse, but see virtually generated worlds in which the games take place. 

All sessions of five or more players are now made private so participants can play in their own group. In addition, game settings have been adjusted to ensure social distancing and the private bar area is available for use after each session at no charge. Come and blow your minds comfortable in an experience that is physically distanced by design.

Find Meetspace VR on the first floor (upstairs) at BOXPARK Wembley, open for pre-booked sessions 7 days a week from 12pm to 10pm. Book your experience at least one day in advance online here - games start from £20 per person.
